There are senior members on the forums who serve as Moderators. These volunteers keep the board organized and moving.
Moderators are authorized to: (in order of increasing severity)
Move posts to the correct forums. Many times, members post in the wrong forum. These off-topic posts may impede the normal operation of the forum.
Edit posts. Moderators will edit posts that are offensive or break any of the House Rules.
Delete posts. Posts that cannot be edited to comply with the House Rules will be deleted.
Restrict members. This is one of the last punishments before a member is banned. Restrictions may include placing all new posts in a moderation queue or temporarily banning the offender.
Ban members. The most severe punishment. Three or more moderators or administrators must agree to the ban for this action to occur. Banning is reserved for very severe offenses and members who, after many warnings, fail to comply with the House Rules. Banning is permanent. Bans cannot be removed by the moderators and probably won't be removed by the administration.

The Rules

1. Warez, copyright violation, or any other illegal activity may NOT be linked or expressed in any form. Topics discussing techniques for violating these laws and messages containing locations of web sites or other servers hosting illegal content will be silently removed. Multiple offenses will result in consequences. File names are not required to discuss your issues. If filenames are copyright then do not belong on these forums & will be edited out or post removed. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

2. Spamming and excessive advertising will not be tolerated. Commercial advertising is not allowed in any form, including using in signatures.

3. There will be no excessive use of profanity in any forum.

4. There will be no racial, ethnic, or gender based insults, or any other personal attacks.

5. Pictures may be attached to posts and signatures if they are not sexually explicit or offensive. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

6. Remember to post in the correct forum. Take your time to look at other threads and see where your post will go. If your post is placed in the wrong forum it will be moved by a moderator. There are specific Gnutella Client sections for LimeWire, Phex, FrostWire, BearShare, Gnucleus, Morpheus, and many more. Please choose the correct section for your problem.

7. If you see a post in the wrong forum or in violation of the House Rules, please contact a moderator via Private Message or the "Report this post to a moderator" link at the bottom of every post. Please do not respond directly to the member - a moderator will do what is required.

8. Any impersonation of a forum member in any mode of communication is strictly prohibited and will result in banning.

9. Multiple copies of the same post will not be tolerated. Post your question, comment, or complaint only once. There is no need to express yourself more than once. Duplicate posts will be deleted with little or no warning. Keep in mind a forum censor may temporarily automatically hold up your post, if you do not see your post, do not post again, it will be dealt with by a moderator within a reasonable time. Authors of multiple copies of same post may be dealt with by moderators within their discrete judgment at the time which may result in warning or infraction points, depending on severity as adjudged by the moderators online.

10. Posts should have descriptive topics. Vague titles such as "Help!", "Why?", and the like may not get enough attention to the contents.

11. Do not divulge anyone's personal information in the forum, not even your own. This includes e-mail addresses, IP addresses, age, house address, and any other distinguishing information. Don´t use eMail addresses in your nick. Reiterating, do not post your email address in posts. This is for your own protection.

12. Signatures may be used as long as they are not offensive or sexually explicit or used for commercial advertising. Commercial weblinks cannot be used under any circumstances and will result in an immediate ban.

13. Dual accounts are not allowed. Cannot explain this more simply. Attempts to set up dual accounts will most likely result in a banning of all forum accounts.

14. Video links may only be posted after you have a tally of two forum posts. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam.

15. Failure to show that you have read the forum rules may result in forum rules breach infraction points or warnings awarded against you which may later total up to an automatic temporary or permanent ban. Supplying system details is a prerequisite in most cases, particularly with connection or installation issues.

Violation of any of these rules will bring consequences, determined on a case-by-case basis.

Thank You! Thanks for taking the time to read these forum guidelines. We hope your visit is helpful and mutually beneficial to the entire community.

Default Win 2000 Blue Screen of Death

I had experienced this once or twice before with 2.2.4, but having just upgraded to 2.4.4 the problem is now ever present.

At some point very soon after starting up limeware I get a system fault so horrific I don’t even get a record in the Event log as to what went wrong – only the less then helpful note:

The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck: the bugcheck was: 0x0000001e (0xc000001d, 0xa00026e4, 0xbbbd6d3c, 0x81699fc8). Microsoft Windows 2000 [v15.2195].

I can't tell if this is generated because of a popup, a fault encounterd during a search, or something else - but it only happens with Limewire.

My system is otherwise very stable and trouble free - lots of mem, P3, and up-to-date service packs. The only thing that from time to time leads to some odd behavior is my Adaptec SCSI controler - an ADA-2940UW, but there is no evidence of a conflict that I can find.

Launch Limewire, wait about 10 seconds and poof - blue screen of death with a memory dump. The error appears to be tied to WIN32K.SYS

Sorting through the dump of the memory is not turning up anything useful. Anyone have a comment on what to look for or how to get around this.

Thanks in advance

Wow, I thought I was the only one with this problem...although I have windows ME (multiple error). It seems to me to have something to do with--randomly selected periods of time... Also, my lime wire frequently closes at random, and causes an error in "jvm.dll" and closes. These also seem to happen at random, which makes downloading files a pain in the ***. If anyone knows how to fix this, let us know plz!!!!

Default Java-jar-binks

Try downloading the latest Java client from sun microsystems 1.4 i think they're up to. get it here

I'm running Limewire on a Win2K server, had a similar problem, downloaded the updated version of the Java System files, which work quite differently from Microsoft's Virtual machine, and it solved my problems, as a matter of fact it solved many other problems.

After you d/l it be sure to uninstall the 1.3 client and restart limewire ... it will say that it cant find its client ... direct it to the 1.4 client and you are set.

I'm running 2.4.4 Pro and haven't had this occur. I have ALL SP and updates. I do have occasional javaw crashes and lockups, GUI problems and crash to desktops of Limewire Pro, usually after running for several hours.

A good source of info on Stop messages can be found here. Maybe it will or won't help with your Limewire problems but it will be generally useful so bookmark it.
